week 10 Mellissa finds dangerous syringe in zone 4

Hi Ginger
As I am sure you know there are some pretty high tides this weekend, which has caused a rather large escarpment in zone 4. So we weren't surprised when we were only finding small pieces of trash, bottle caps etc.  But then we found something pretty scary. It was a syringe, cap off and needle facing upwards. We were actually quite lucky we didn't step on it. So beach walkers beware, apparently trash isn't the only thing you need to worry about now.
We collected one full grocery size bag of trash. However it think it consisted mainly of plastic and beer bottle caps.
